Alcatraz & Golden Gate Bridge

Alcatraz & the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito Tour

Once you’ve explored San Francisco’s most fascinating landmark on an Alcatraz Prison Tour, hop on a bike to enjoy the coastline that surrounds it.

Your bike tour begins in Fisherman’s Wharf, one of the last true wharfs of its kind left in America before taking off towards the Golden Gate Bridge. We’ll follow a fun and easy course along the coast, where you’ll spot sea lions, wind organs, and the old military fort in one of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods. Our path takes us up and over the Golden Gate Bridge, where you can snap the perfect photo with the towering orange bridge above and the city skyline in the back. Once over the “International Orange”, coast downhill into sunny Sausalito where you’ll bring your bike aboard the ferry for a scenic ride back to the wharf.

Customer Reviews

  • Amazing sights. So easy to achieve! Our guided bike tour was great. We hadn't been on a bike for at least 10 years but was no way left behind. Phil our tour guide was fab, he knew a lot of history and was very friendly. We stopped at all the sights and got great pictures. Great value for money, so glad we did the tour
